She is just horrible in and outside the courtroom. I saw her once at a restaurant and I walked out. It spoiled my appetite and had I stayed it would have caused me indigestion.

She is one of the worst. If she does not like you she makes it very obvious on the bench. I do not like how she treated one DDA in the courtroom and frankly I was sickened. I practice in Santa Clara County. I have had some negative experiences in Monterey County. I am done.

This judge is another second chair for the prosecution. I don't know if she is any worse than any other Monterey county judge, however.

I do not like her demeanor which causes a lot of people discomfort and aggravation. I avoid her and that brings me great relief.
